Heavy Geekdom and yet..

First: this is ultra-heavy geek territory, but it's not necessarily computer geeks only. What I mean is that although this is all computer and networking related, any general engineering geek-type will probably enjoy it.

What I particularly liked is the author's attention to detail. I'd start reading a chapteer and think "Yeah, I know this", but then realize that he was just leading me through the basics because he had something important and interesting to say that I probably did NOT know.. and that was usually true.

And although there is a lot of ink devoted to explaining the background of things you may already know, I didn't mind it because the author has style and wit and presents things with a slant that makes it fun to read even when I already knew everything.

Before I was done with this, I cornered my geek son-in-law and had him read one chapter. He's very busy right now, and hasn't had time to read two other books I gave him last month. He read the chapter and I said "You want this when I'm done, right?". He said "Oh, yeah. Definitely".

Title: Learn the Nikon D70  Camera for 5 Bucks (Learn...for 5 Bucks)

Perfect Primer

This book is exactly what I've needed with my new Nikon D70. It is the perfect primer. The user's manual included with the camera was overly complicated and detailed, and the quick start guide with the camera gave too little information. This small book is just right for a novice/beginner photographer who wants to get familiar with the D70.

There are plenty of color photos that show clearly the various buttons and settings required for different functions.

If you want detailed, advanced instruction, look elsewhere. If you want basic, beginner information however, then this book is for you.
